Metzer (Hebrew: מֶצֶר, lit. Border) is a kibbutz in the Menashe area of northern Israel.

The kibbutz was founded on 8 September 1953 by immigrants from Argentina. In November 2002, a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated the kibbutz and murdered 5 people including a mother and her two sons.[1] The perpetrator, Sirhan Sirhan (militant), was killed a year later by the Yamam.
